We had some basmati rice left over from Indian takeaway, and a rapidly aging cauliflower. As I was holding both scanning the fridge for inspiration, I remembered this Jamie Oliver recipe for Salmon Tikka that my sister introduced me to (which I highly recommend). I thought that if salmon smeared with curry paste tasted so good, so would cauliflower.
|Dished into lunch containers the next day|
2-3 cups cooked white or basmati rice
1 head cauliflower, broken into small florets
2 Tbsp Patak's mild curry paste*
2 tsp vegetable oil
2-3 Tbsp chopped cilantro (or more!)
3/4 cup defrosted frozen peas
Smear the cauliflower with curry paste and drizzle with oil. Spread on pan and roast in a preheated 400 degree oven until soft and browned, around 25 minutes. When cooled mix with rice, peas and cilantro. Enjoy!
*I have no affiliation with Patak's, but would take freebies if they wanted to send me some!
